It's my dad's birthday today and I decided to make a stepper card for him ... just to be a little bit different from all the other cards dropping through his door.
The majority of the papers were in my K. & Co. drawer and all were matted onto gold mirri card before being added to the seperate panels.
The lovely foiled paper is from a pack called "Vennaissance" by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and I cut one of the foiled oval figures to mat it up with offcuts from the other papers to create a focal panel, before adding the greeting. The lovely wide green and gold ribbon was perfect for a nice big bow to decorate the back panel.
The scalloped border across the front is also K. & Co. from a 12" x 12" pad of double-sided papers and some dark green adhesive pearls add just enough decoration without being OTT. There are a couple of challenges this week which suit this card so I may as well join in. Well ... you never know when lady luck is going to knock at the door ... rata..tat..tat.
